Edgar Farrera, Director of Sustainability at Circuit of the Americas, joined us for a conversation on F1 Racing in Austin and the challenges in âgreeningâ operations leading up to the first Austin race in November. The City of Austin had over 50 requests relating to impact, transportation and sustainability. We talked about where the challenges are in meeting that list and about âgreeningâ in sports leagues in general.
